$1 million and counting — Brookwood High School hits fundraising goal for charitable causes

In September 2014, under the director of former principal William Bo Ford Jr., Brookwood High School initiated the March to One Million campaign with the schools’ student government association, with a plan to raise $1 million in 10 years for charitable causes.

In late February, the March to One Million campaign reached its goal in less than nine years, and current principal Brett Savage has already established Brookwood’s second March to One Million campaign to carry the school through the next decade. For six consecutive years, the school cleared $10,000 and despite the yearlong interruption from the COVID pandemic, the school reached its goal in just eight and a half years.
